"When a man's an empty kettle, he should be on his mettle..."

Movie: Superman/Batman: Public Enemies (2009)
This movie is a cheeky adaptation of an overdrawn, badly written comic book, but it’s still better than any Batman movie ever done by Tim Burton (producer of 9 — FAIL!). The voice actors, particularly Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy, hit their one-liners just fine. The director is a little too happy with himself, and what is up with Power Girl’s boobs?! (Bad enough they made her as doe-eyed as Allison Mack, the actress who performs her voice and mewls through Smallville each week.) The script has some good comic book moments but is ultimately as hollow as Major Force’s uniform.
Compared to the great Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, this movie thought this was Ceti Alpha VI.
If Leonard Nimoy had directed it, there would have been more heart and he would have done great voice work as Hawkman.
If Scotty had seen the movie with me,
he’d have said, “I dunna watch kiddie shows.”
Overall:
Luthor becomes President. Superman becomes a fugitive after being accused of killing Metallo. Batman, as his love interest, helps clear his name; stop Luthor; oh, and prevent a giant kryptonite asteroid from reaching Earth. The kind of story that would have begun and ended in the front two-thirds of an issue of Action Comics back in the ’70s. Even better, one half-hour episode of Super-Friends. Boobs!
SPOILER: Superman and Batman win!
I give this movie:
1.73 Nomads out of 5
